The Macallan Whisky Tasting

We had a pleasure of hosting a Scotch Tasting last week with one of our favorite humans on the planet, Brian MacGregor. Brian is a whisky expert, enthusiast, aficionado and just plain great to be around kind of guy. And he also happens to be the market manager for one of world’s greatest and our favorite Scotch Whiskies, Macallan. We had an intimate group of personally invited guests that had the opportunity to learn and try some fantastic expressions. Brain took us through what makes Macallan one of the most known and respected distilleries in the world. To be invited to one of our future tastings / events please email us here

Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida. Jiu Jitsu Black Belt

We had the pleasure of meeting and fitting Marcus “Buchecha” Almeida this weekend at our Pop Up / Trunk Show event at The Social Trust in Downtown Los Angeles’ Art District. Marcus Almeida, also known as “Buchecha” (or Bochecha), is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt under Rodrigo Cavaca and a member of the Checkmat academy, being widely regarded as the greatest grappler of his generation and arguably of all time in the sport of BJJ. His reputation is backed by his 5 IBJJF World Championship open weight titles, being the record holder of absolute gold medals at the ‘Mundial’ after breaking Roger Gracie‘s previous record (3) back in 2016. We are vey excited to make Marcus a custom suit, so stay tuned for the finished product. Photo Credits: Paul Sun
